Shrimp and Grits

  • Author: Chef Tony Reed
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 46 servings 1x




  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup grits (yellow)
  • 2oz butter, unsalted
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
    • salt, to taste
    • Tabasco, to taste


Garnish (optional):

  • chives
  • Black & Bleu Hushpuppy crouton crumble


  1. In a saucepan combine 2 cups of milk and 2 cups of water in the pan and bring to a simmer or medium-high heat. Stir occasionally to prevent milk from burning at the base of the pan. 
  2. Slowly pour in grits while whisking to prevent clumping. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir until grits are cooked all the way through and tender (about 45min). 
  3. Stir in butter, cheese, salt and hot sauce to season.
  4. Garnish and serve immediately.
